For much of his career, Tim Rutili has served as a bandleader, first in Red Red Meat and more recently in the experimental folk band Califone. Recently, however, Rutili added filmmaker to his résumé with his feature-length debut, All My Friends are Funeral Singers. The film focuses on Zel, a fortune teller whose cozy relationship with the ghostly inhabitants of her haunted house comes under duress, threatening her bizarre livelihood. Last year the band released the soundtrack to the film, its first album since 2006s excellent Roots & Crowns. At this show, Califone will accompany a screening of the film and also play a set culled from its back catalog.
